Watch the Flashy Jack online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1
This first jam is along the lines of the Rolling Stones' classic, "Jumping Jack Flash," a song that is not only often played during virtually every open jam night but is also in the standard repertoire of most club bands. I recommend all guitar players hone up on their Rolling Stones catalog in order to be prepared to play Stones songs at a moment's notice. There are so many great rhythm and lead guitar techniques one can learn from playing Stones material, which one can then elaborate on and be inventive with during an improvised jam. The rhythm parts outlined here are intended to complement the primary part that exists on the record, parts that will add rhythmic drive, by locking in with the drum and bass parts, as well as harmonic interest to the musical landscape.
